Presence and observation
Grab a nice cold drink and #relax
Find a shady spot in a garden or on a sofa and be quiet, #observe what is around you, now follow the breath deep and slow, hold it and breath out slowly with shhhh ocean sound, do 10 rounds of this breathing consciously, take a few moments in stillness. Now write down in your special journal, 5 experiences that you are grateful for it could simply be the warmth of the sun on your face, a beautiful butterfly fluttering from flower to flower, or the comfy armchair that is supporting you, feel your body supported, held, safe. Feel the gratitude in that. Become aware of the feeling arising within this body with each experience, don't react just observe. Sit with each observation, wether it is comfortable or uncomfortable.
Make time everyday to do this. Soon you will become aware of the uncomfortable feelings and sit with them until they dissolve into nothing, or go deep into the root of it.
A bit of tongue in cheek humour... remember to laugh everyday.
In closing presence is not a nicely wrapped #gift, although that is nice too. Sitting down with a nice cold drink is not grabbing an iced latte in a crowded cafe at lunch time. And lastly you don't have to be in an exotic location to enjoy your surroundings.
Use this technique to find beauty and peace in your life. See you next time for more tips and observations.
